...you try to dial "9" for an outside line and you are at home.

Can't believe I caught myself trying to do that today...

For me..after hanging out at airports with auto flush urinals..then comming home,getting up in the middle of the night to take a leak, walking in to a wall (haha) finding the head and taking said leak, I found myself staring at the bowl...wondering why the damn thing wasn't flushing. Then it dawns on me..that A. I am home and B. I am a dummy.

Generally speaking I stare dumbfounded at sinks that don't automatically dispense water when you wave your hand under the faucet...

You're not traveling very much until you wake up one morning and don't know where you are.

Thinking it's a good idea to stay in bed until you know where you are, you notice a lump in the bed that is not the family dog. You correctly deduce you are not at home.

You stick out your hand and promptly knock the hotel's lamp off the nightstand.

Not until you are at the airplane reading the sign on the terminal building do you realize your location.

The only worse case is not until you initialize the avionics do you read your location off of the GPS.

Fly SAFE!

how about when your in the yard sweating your ass off and decide something cold to drink would be good, then proceed to dig in your pockets on the way to the house so you can find 75 cents for the coke machine...

Heh, that's my favorite one. When I was flying aerial photography we would be gone for weeks and weeks at a time in the summer and some mornings I woke up in a complete haze of disorientation for a minute or two - where am I? What town am I in? Who am I flying with? Where did I fly yesterday? Where am I supposed to go today? ...etc. etc.

And at the same company...you know know you're travelling too much when the crew keeps a box of laundry detergent in the baggage compartment of the plane.

...you find your gold fish floating at the top of the bowl. I hate it when that happens.

How 'bout when you say to the Taco Bell sign:
"Roger, $4.71, drive around to the first window, N990XX"

or:

when your wife gets nice.

You've been on the road too long when you actually figure out how that pesky hotel alarm clock works - AND you start getting excited when you walk into a new hotel room and it has the "easy to use" alarm clock on the night stand!

Also, when you pick up the phone next to your bed at home wanting to call the front desk for a wake up call, then get mad that you'll have to set your own alarm clock.

....you write the room number on a piece of paper and put it in your pocket to remember what room your in only to find out later that you did not take out the last several pieces of paper with room numbers on it...........................

or you charge the meal to a room number on the tenth floor and the server comes back and explains that it cant be your room number as this hotel only has 8 floors........

How 'bout coming home to have your dog stare at you with a look that says 'you live here?'...I guess if you get the same look from your wife, it's time for a new job...(or wife)

New one to revive this thread. You stop at the stop sign before you turn left for your street. You look both ways and make your turn. It's 2 AM. Disco lights, siren, cop asks you how much you've been drinking. You're still in uniform and haven't. He asks why you ran the red light. "There's a light there?" You and your crashpad-mate passenger look back, "####, you're right!" The cop lets you off with a warning, laughing. The light has been there for a month.

Home, for people not of our kind...
